On Friday, Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order reassigning Lobbyist Ron Book’s DUI prosecution to Amira D. Fox, a prosecutor from the 20th Judicial Circuit (covering Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee counties). The Broward County State attorney had asked to step down to avoid a conflict of interest, as he is personal friends with Mr. Book.

A copy of the executive order can be found here:

Amira Fox was elected State Attorney for the 20th Circuit this past year and committed to “work hard to lower the crime rate.” Let’s hope she follows through on her commitment.
